Aaron Taylor Kuffner: Gamelatron Sanctuary

Exhibition Website

Jun 4 2017 - Aug 13 2017

Hammer Museum

Los Angeles, CA

This immersive sonic experience comprises a five-part kinetic sculpture that combines traditional Indonesian instruments with modern robotics.

Throughout the summer visitors will experience an immersive sonic installation on Lindbrook Terrace created by artist and composer Aaron Taylor Kuffner. Inspired by traditional Indonesian Gamelan—percussion-based ensemble music—and created in partnership with Balinese master craftsmen, Kuffner’s kinetic sculptures connect the rich cultural history of Indonesia with contemporary robotics and orchestration. The installation will include a five-part kinetic sculpture, the Aaron Taylor Kuffner (“Flowers of the Gods” in Indonesian), which will play site-responsive compositions throughout the day for the duration of the exhibition.
